Recipe by Carolina Doriti
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries
50 ml lime juice
1 lime cut into wedges
100 ml Dry Gin
1 Ginger Beer
2 tbsp Biomadica Organic Sage Flower Water + extra to spray the glass
Fresh cranberries to garnish (optional)
Prepare a simple syrup by combining water and sugar in a small saucepan and bringing to boil. Gently simmer until sugar dissolves.
Keep ½ cup and the rest store in the fridge for later use.
Return the ½ cup of simple syrup into the saucepan and back on medium heat. Add in the cranberries and gently simmer for a couple of minutes until they start to burst and soften. Remove from heat, mush the cranberries and allow to cool down completely. Strain using a fine sieve.
Fill 2 glasses with ice. Spray them with the sage water.
In a large shaker (or a pitcher) combine ice, cranberry syrup, gin, lime juice and the sage water. Shake well and pour halfway up the glasses. Top up each glass with ginger beer, add in 1-2 lime wedges into each drink and decorate with cranberries.
